Ash Breeze Debut Album
Ash Breeze has a new self-titled album out today. It's produced by Aaron Ramsey, a talented and well-known bluegrass artist, but don't let that fool you. The new album is a smooth blend of Ash Breeze's favorite genres; bluegrass, Americana and folk. Listeners will be pleased because it includes many original songs that were written by band members, a few classics and fine instrumentals that almost blow you away.
Ash Breeze (formally known as The Smith Family Band) has been performing together for many years. It's because of this that their music is so tight. Their family harmonies, perfect. Before seeing a photo of them, I was very surprised to learn that most of the members of the band are under they age of 18. They are really THAT good!
I really enjoy their original single, "Without Love" and their version of James Taylor's hit, "Carolina In My Mind". It was a risky move to tackled such a beloved song, but they perform it magically. The song is fitting for this dynamic group that call North Carolina "home", maybe that's why they can perform it so well?
I think this album is outstanding. I can't keep my toe from tapping!
